A District incorporating digital learning in a Title I schoolwide program can use Title I, Part A funds to purchase devices and digital learning resources to support all students and staff if this use is supported by the school’s comprehensive needs assessment and schoolwide plan. In addition, the school might use Title II, Part A funds to help teachers improve their teaching through the use of effective blended learning practices, Title III, Part A funds to provide access to supplemental technology specifically for English Language Learners (ELLs), and Title IV.
